On Monday, the Preds released a statement stating they expect to reopen their doors in time to host Tuesday's game as scheduled.

"While some of the arena's systems and guest support functions may not be 100 percent operational for Tuesday's game or Friday's Maren Morris concert, Predators President and Chief Executive Officer Sean Henry is steadfast in the organization's appreciation for everyone's efforts in getting the building as prepared as possible," they said in the statement.
